Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The spacing between the brake pedal and gas pedal is too close. Driver's foot gets caught between the pedals when changing from one pedal to the other. This resulted in vehicle crashing into another vehicle while pulling into a parking space due to faiilure to use brake pedal.

Brake pedal and accelerator pedal are too close together. Consumer states that when pushing down on the brake pedal, the side of his foot hits the accelerator and the car may move forward. Consumer has had two close calls. Consumer is concerned with the design, to prevent touching the pedal.
